Police pulled over a Jiangsu man for driving while attached to an intravenous drip on April 30, according to CCTV news.

Gang Fang was apparently traveling on a highway in Jiangsu province—located in east China—with a bag of fluid sticking from his sunroof, and a tube leading to his arm that Wednesday afternoon.

Gang told police that earlier that day he visited a hospital due to stress. Doctors told him to lie down, and take time off work, but the 38-year-old complained he didn’t have time. Attendants then gave him energy in the form of a drip, but the businessman still didn’t have time to wait in the hospital—he snuck over to his car, placed the bag on a stand behind his front seat, and poked the fluid from his sunroof.

Police then pulled him over for dangerous driving.

“I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong,” a witness overheard him say.

Gang now faces a driving ban, and a summons for dangerous driving. Motorists who travel while attached to a drip are apparently four times more likely to be involved in an accident than those who drive drunk, according to CCTV News.

“This is incredibly dangerous,” a police spokesperson said. “Not only was he taking medicines that could have affected his driving directly into a vein, he was unable to steer properly because he would have ripped the tube out.”
